Step 1: Checklist
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Are you interested in:

  • mEye Full Edition
    For users who prefer to set up webcams for lite monitoring at home or small offices of small places

  • mEye Enterprise


    For users who want to monitor indoor / outdoor in a large place over a few locations eg. home/offices, factories, warehouses etc.

    Do you have the following:

 
 
A Web Cam?
  • Most web cams will work with no problem. Logitech or Creative brands of web cam are recommended.
  • Other brands may not function or all features may not be available.
 
A Computer to run the web cam in your home/office?
  • This computer will need to run during the times you may want to see the web cam images (usually 24-hours a day)
  • The operating system software should be Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, NT or XP.
  • Your computer will also need a USB port (for the web cam) and you will need to be able to install the mEye software on this computer (some offices have restrictions on installing software - please check first).
 
A Broadband Internet Connection at your home/office?
  • The computer that runs the web cam will need to be connected to the internet in order for you to be able to access the web cam images whenever you want to see them.
  • This means you will need an "always on" broadband connection instead of a dialup connection, for example Streamyx (mEye will still work with dialup, but it will be too expensive to have a live connection for so many hours).
 
Mobile Phone
  • Any brand of GSM phone will work, as long as it:
    o Has a color screen.
    o Supports GPRS and MMS.

If you answered 'yes' to the questions above, go to Step 2 to find out how to make sure your web cam is ready for mEye™!
